Our Instructors and Teaching Style
Our professional dance instructors are above all educators who focus on producing dancers that are poised, confident and exude high self-esteem. Dance technique is very important to Miss Laurene, our Director, and as such, dance students receive quality technique training from September through June, with a focus on dance performance choreography in the Spring.
So excited to be celebrating our 20th year of providing so many of the youngsters in our community with excellence in dance. Dance Expressions is so proud of our many accomplishments in inspiring and creating the passion for dance to our students in order to be the best they can be.
The Academy of Dance Expressions is a well established and accomplished dance studio which opened in Westboro in 1995 under the direction of founder, Laurene Aldorisio, a talented dance educator who has been teaching dance for 28 years and prides herself in offering programs of dance that cater to each students needs, talents and interests. Laurene is a native of this area and was raised and grew up in Northboro, Ma.
Laurene's motivation is having something for everyone who has an interest in dancing regardless of their level, age, gender or goals as classes are available for tiny tots age 18 months years to adults as well as to seniors as she has a seniors tap class for beginners as well as an adult jazz and movement class. Whether a person wishes to take only one class in any one of her several forms of dance offered or wishes to think about a career in dance by participating as a Dance Expressions Dance Company member , they are very much part of our dance family.
Her philosophy of "we stress dance technique in a stress free dance environment" has been her motto from the beginning as she and her professional staff teach dance where their focus is doing it in a caring and nurturing way in order to have students reach their fullest potential. Students are offered the opportunity to improve their dance skills through master classes taught by very acclaimed artists throughout the United States, attend dance conventions, participate in dance competitions, audition with professional local dance company to be in their winter or spring ballet performances, do community outreach performances in the MetroWest area and perform at both our winter and spring fantastic performances.
